Green Gram Salad with Dates & Caramelized Onion Rings

Green Gram Salad with Dates & Caramelized Onion Rings

I was inspired by a recipe that used caramelized onions and decided to throw it in with salad. I cooked some green gram. Make sure you use soak it for about 2 hours before cooking and it’ll cook well in about 3 whistles of a pressure cooker. I thought of dates as a natural sweetener and the salad tasted the best I’ve eaten with the sweet, tangy, slightly pungent combination. I love the burst of colors in salads, especially this one. I’ve also fried the onions in olive oil and it lends a wonderful character to the salad.
